Okay, so I don't know if I'm being paranoid or not but here goes.
Over the past 2 days or so my boys movements have become less. I didn't really feel anything last night (but I was really tired) and haven't felt any significant movement from 7:30am this morning.
He's usually VERY active, kicking me all times of day and night, I don't have to be resting to feel his movements either. I can feel him move but the kicks/movements are very slight and not strong like usual and not as frequent. I'm 29+1.
Should I ring maternity or not as he is moving, just not as usual.
Oh and I've also had a few pains low in my abdomen. Varying from dull pain to sharp sort of period pain type pain. They're very random and don't last long, maybe 10 seconds or so, so I think they may be braxton hicks?
I've been in twice for RFM and both times although everything turned out to be fine, the midwives couldn't emphasize enough that I shouldn't feel silly about getting checked out if you have any concerns.
To be honest it wasn't until around 32-33 weeks that I really felt CONSTANT movement, as the baby has lots of room to move around so if it gets into a position further away from the front you may not feel it as strongly. Just give them a call, I would
Please go in now - I don't want to panic you but that sounds similar to some problems I had - all ended well, but I needed to be in hospital. I know it is hard to think that something might be wrong but you really need to get checked out - even if it is just to hear that baby is fine but you need more rest.
Absolutely contact your midwife/maternity - the key is that his movements have changed and you are right to pick up on it. I have been urged by my midwife to not hesitate in scenarios like this - it may be nothing or it may be something but they'd rather have lots of 'nothings' than for a 'something' to not be picked up.
Just realised you have said you would ring! great news - hope its ok. p.s. your other symptoms sound like possible BH... I'm the same stage as you and had my first couple over the weekend and one last night... Your midwife should be able to confirm...
